Civil Engineering

Besides teaching undergraduate students, the department also provides consultancy services in planning, design, survey, laboratory testing of construction and highway materials. It undertakes soil investigation and water and sewage analysis. The department provides supervision of specialized type of construction to governmental, voluntary and private construction agencies. One of the major projects was planning the provision of water supply to the Kukkundor village panchayat of Karkala Taluk, Udupi district and Ujire village of Belthangady taluk (D.K). The department recently signed an MOU with KIADB, Mangalore.

The department has also taken up Karnataka State Council for Science & Technology (KSCST) funded projects like ground water analysis of the Karkala municipal town, properties and suitability of fine quarry dust for the final coat plastering, blending of cement with locally available materials, defluorination of water by Tamarind Gel and Traffic Analysis and pavement evaluation along NH17.

Civil Engineering has a good scope where the construction industry (buildings), road construction, water supply, construction and restoration of water tanks and power supply, are concerned as a top priority has been given to these sections by the Government.
